It may be one of the understatements of all time to say that pure research in the area of antibodies is somewhat demanding. Add to this the demands of often extensive, time-consuming lab work, and you have the mechanics of a research projects which needs a bit of practical help. You may also have an “interesting” collection of costs to deal with.
Some cynics in research say that researchers never really get pattern baldness – It’s a result of tearing their hair out working with the basics of operating research programs. If so, the DIY hair style is fully justified.
The new, much easier on the hairline, best practice is to actively research the structure of the research project first. Interestingly, one of the most productive ways of handling pure research is to deal with the hard grind work of the research by simply outsourcing it.
The logic here is pretty straightforward:
• It’s better for researchers to focus on the high value aspects of research, than simply plod around doing basic research work.
• The cost factor in outsourcing is measurable, whereas the costs of doing things ad hoc in house can blow out, quite significantly, if extra work needs doing.
• “Custom” research, where designer antibodies are required, can also benefit from outsourcing lab work by maintaining the operating processes of production and design outside the core research work.
• If you’re working with variables of standard polyclonal antibodies and products like rabbit anti-llama biotin, sheep anti-EGFR or rabbit anti-llama alkaline phosphatase, a supplier which can also do lab work is a natural choice for outsourcing.
• Outsourcing also reduces the notorious and much loathed “clutter factor” in house.
A company called Capralogics Inc. is a good example of this methodology. This is a true industry leader, very highly regarded among professional researchers for its efficiency and high-value contributions to research work. They do everything from acting as a supplier of antibodies to designer antibody production.
